My honourable friend the Minister of State, Department of Health (Phil Hope) has made the following Written Ministerial Statement.
I am today placing in the Library Valuing People Now: Delivery plan for 2010-11 which was published on 31 March 2010, to support the implementation of Valuing People Now, a new three year strategy for people with learning disabilities published in January 2009.
The delivery plan sets out the progress made in the first year. It also recognises that there is still more to do to improve the lives of people with learning disabilities and their family carers. The delivery plan sets out the key priorities for 2010-11, in particular, to improve employment and housing opportunities and better health outcomes for people with learning disabilities and their family carers.
Other materials, including Person-centred planning guidance, Valuing Older Family Carers Now, the Valuing People Now Housing Delivery Plan and a range of housing resources are available at www.valuing people.gov.uk/dynamic/valuingpeople6.jsp
Copies of the Valuing People Now: Delivery plan 2010-11 are available to honourable Members from the Vote Office.
